A Very Cool Tree

Cool #tree.

This tree with the white cotton ball like pods is called Ceiba speciosa, or the silk floss tree. It produces these really interesting cotton like pods, and these are quite amusing to look at. Photography is one of my favorite things, and it is always the inspiration for my art projects.

  1. That’s a pretty tree. It had me wondering whether the cotton-like pods were turned into fabric or threads, so I turned to Wikipedia. I learned that in Brazil the petals of the flowers the tree produces is used as thread in upholstery. I love the Internet.
